    new newt home

    Hi. I want to know if I can take plexiglass and section off a 3rd of my newt tank to make a land area. Will it work and is 6 1/2 inches of water deep good?
    They live in a 10 gallon. I would hang fake plants from the land area for them to get in and out of the water along with floating lilly pads and logs etc. Also should I make the land a little higher then 6 1/2 inches so that when I put the frozen water bottles in to keep the temps down that it wont over flow into the land?
    Thanks in advance,
    Cheryl

    What type of newt are you talking about? I use to have a 20-gallon tank with a ten gallon tank in the middle and they would go from land to water. The depth of the water will depend on the size of the newt.
